What led you to start creating your art/craft?
I have always enjoyed various forms of arts and crafts - drawing, oil painting, knitting, crocheting, and others. After visiting a bead store, I fell in love with the natural beauty of the stones and freshwater pearls, bought a few strands, and that's how it all began!
How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?
Combining the raw beauty of stones, pearls and other components with sterling silver or gold-plated accents allows me to express my style while creating little works of wearable art. I especially like the fact that handmade jewelry makes terrific and unique accents to our everyday outfits!
What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?
It's hard to choose just one - if I had to narrow it down, it would be playing around with various components and turning them into new and unexpected designs, interacting with my customers and packing orders! I know a lot of people wish they had someone else to pack up orders, but I just love it!
If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?
Great question! I would choose a pomegranate because it is striking in color and has a unique texture. Similarly, my jewelry is a combination of bright splashes of color and various 3-D shapes.
If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?
I would love to become a metalsmith. Making my own metal findings, rings and pendants would be incredible!
What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
My tag line contains the message that I want to convey with my pieces: jaC Jewelry - Pieces that Speak to the Unique in You.
What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?
Stay true to who you are and follow your passion!
